Broccoli Soup

6-8 cups broccoli, chopped
4 medium sized potatoes, cut into chunks
1-2 leeks, sliced
1 onion (red), peeled and cut into chunks
1/3 cup heavy cream
water or stock
1 teaspoon salt
ground pepper

Place broccoli, potatoes, leeks, salt and onion in a soup pot. Fill with water (or stock) until everything is just barely covered. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 45 minutes to an hour, until broccoli is very tender.

Puree until smooth. Add desired amount of cream. Add pepper. Adjust salt, if necessary.

Doesn't this look yummy? I haven't tried it yet, but I have everything but the actual broccoli so it'll be a cheap meal... and oh how I love soup in the Fall, oh how I love FALL:) I might also add some cheese (Matt will like it better that way, too;-) Tell me your favorite Fall soups!

Looks delicious! I'm with Matt on the cheese...mmm. My sister makes awesome homemade chicken noodle soup. She rolls out the noodles.. it's amazing. I'll have to see if she goes off a recepie, and let you know. Also my dad makes "POR MAN SOUP" It contains mini dumplings (made with Flour), potatoes, milk, onion, and salt and pepper.. No Meat, hence the name. If you want to try that one I can give you that recepie too.
